Saturday, June 12 at 1:30pm we screened Leisure Tests at Trylon Cinema, and also held a Q&A session afterwards. It was so fun to gather with others again and enjoy a video work in a real theatre!
Many thanks to everyone who attended, and thank you to Chris Rackley for the thoughtful re-cap video posted to Instagram! Thanks too to the folks at Trylon Cinema who were a dream to work with – everything went so smoothly, and for a very reasonable rental fee. Be sure to reach out to them for your next screening project.
Join me at Trylon Cinema on Saturday, June 12 at 1:30pm for a premiere of my new experimental video series, “Leisure Tests.”
In this series (10 short pieces, total running time 15 minutes), viewers will recognize the Mississippi river in combination with bodies shifting and moving to embody ideas of leisure at this specific location. The screening will be followed by Q&A. Viewers will recognize performers Kaya Lovestrand, Grover Hogan, Non Edwards, and Erika Hansen.
This work is supported by a MN State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
I’m excited to be teaching “Walking as Artistic Practice” at UIndy’s MA in Social Practice Art program this summer. It’s a multi-week workshop, and I’ll be teaching it online, building on the lessons learned from last summer’s online iteration.
